Valentine’s adventure ideas to enjoy together (& great gifts to go with them!)

Thinking about alternative gift ideas for Valentine’s Day? Forget flowers and chocolates, this year why not mix it up and treat the special person in your life to a memory-making experience, alongside the perfect present to unwrap for your adventure together.

Here’s 3 valentines gift ideas for those that love the outdoors….

Valentine’s Activity Idea – Organise a Wild Picnic 

Planning a romantic wild picnic somewhere special is a really thoughtful Valentine’s idea. You could start with a walk or cycle to a place that means a lot to you both, or somewhere new you’ve always wanted to go. Take some tasty picnic treats, a flask of hot chocolate (it is February after all!) and a blanket so you can get comfortable.

Our 25L Lightweight Waterproof Backpack is the perfect Valentine’s gift for this adventure. It will protect all your picnic essentials from the elements, and is designed for everyday adventures like hiking or cycling.

Or if your partner is a keen photographer, our Stormproof DLSR Padded Pouch will ensure they can capture the moment while having peace of mind that their camera is protected. It’s supplied with an adjustable shoulder-strap and a belt so you can wear it securely on your waist with no bouncing around.

Valentine’s Activity Idea – Find a Secret Beach or Cove

If you’re a couple who love getting out on the water, why not organise a SUP or kayak to find a secret beach or cove? There’s so many hidden beaches you can reach from the water that would make the most romantic destination by paddleboard or kayak. 

An ideal Valentine’s gift to help your partner enjoy this adventure would be our 7L Heavyweight Drybag with Shoulder-Strap – it’s brilliant for watersports and perfect for taking some supplies (and snacks!) with you. 

Or how about a Waterproof Phone Case – you can take great photos and videos of your day, as the touchscreen works as normal, and it comes with a lanyard so you can keep it safe while you’re out and about.

Valentine’s Activity Idea – Go Coasteering

Ready to push yourselves out of your comfort zone and make some awesome adventure memories together? A day out coasteering could be the perfect experience! Before you head out, give them a Valentine’s gift of an Armband Waterproof Phone Case. It’s professional grade waterproof with a sports strength armband that’s adjustable to fit all – perfect for when you’re leaping into the sea together.

If you think this could be the start of many more coasteering trips, why not treat them to our Lightweight Waterproof Map Case, so they can plan their adventures in all weather!

We hope these alternative Valentine’s Day gift ideas have inspired you to get creative this year – happy adventures from everyone at Aquapac!
